Enders Game is a classic science fiction book made better by the audio format. The readers do a first-rate job, and the story is so compelling that the story ends much too soon. Fortunately, there are many books in the Enders Game line; I have read them all, and I look forward to listening to the rest.
Stefan Rudnicki does a wonderful, wonderful job of reading this exceptional book. The story is as good as its awards suggest. This audio recording includes a part, after the reading of the book, in which the author (Orson Scott Card) explains at some length how he wrote and promoted the book, and the difficulties he faced in the effort to bring it to screen. An interesting tale of a writer's integrity. Definitely worth the money, and the time.
Guess my title say's it all. But seriously, this book is well written, entertaining, and very ahead of its time. Kudos to the author.
The narrator is very good. There is a bit of weird music at the beginning of chapters, but it is not distracting. There is also an afterword by Orson Scott Card at the end.
I gobbled this audio book quickly. I consider this my introduction to Sci-Fi and now I'm searching for more books that will give me such a satisfying experience. Not only was the story totally engaging, but the narration team of this book, especially the lead narrator, made this a joy. Recommended for everyone, not just sci-fi fans.
This book definitely took a while to get my full interest. It began a little slowly and seemed a little boring, but thankfully I continued to listen. By the end though, I realized just how well thought out this story was. It was a good story and well worth listening to. I wish I could give it a 4.5 rating!
What can i say it is about a boy that is the ONE!!! that going to save earth. Im going to get all the book in the series beecouse i love this one so much. This first book is about him getting to go to a school for kids like him to learn how to fight but he is going to learn he is the one that is going to save earth and how good he is at his fate of being the ONE!!!!
Perents that are going to buy this for there kids it is a book for pre-teens and up.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book I have to say. I have read it several times and was interested to see what this would be like. It felt genuine and authentic if you get my drift. The use of multiple narrators really helped and I got a real sense of the book and how I originally read it in my head.
I would definately recommend this for a long plane ride, I listed to this on parts of the Inca trail in Peru and on the flight back. Simply excellent.
